Vision of Love

May 19, 2012
Katie’s first experience with 2 Dine 4 came at an event that we catered in conjunction with her work.   When she made the decision to get married at The Wild Onion Ranch and discovered that we were the preferred caterer there she knew she was in good hands.  After reviewing the customized proposal that we did for her that featured several sample menus, and attending a Supper Friends dinner along with her parents, she decided on the following menu:


Passed Hors d’oeuvres
Achiote Grilled Shrimp Tostada with Black Bean Puree and Nuevo Guacamole
Griddled Spinach, Black Bean & Cheese Flautas
Pork & Green Chile Empanadas with Cilantro Aioli
Reception Buffet Dinner
Butter Lettuce Salad with Avocado, Feta and Sangria Onions tossed in Red Wine Vinaigrette
Braised Beef Brisket with Guajillo Barbecue Sauce and Goat Cheese Crema
Smoked Chicken Enchiladas with Salsa Verde and Mango Pico de Gallo
Roasted Corn and Black Bean Salad with Honey, Lime & Cilantro Dressing
White Cheddar & Chipotle Mashed Potatoes
Smoked Vegetables in Herbed Sherry Vinaigrette
Cornbread Muffins and Spanish Foccacia


Katie is a designer and when she came to us to discuss catering hers and David’s wedding it was clear she had a vision.  Of course, a big part of what we do is help people realize their vision, which extends beyond just what’s being served on the buffet and at the bar.  Our event planners work with a wide range of vendors to help our clients select a flattering flatware pattern, a perfect plate or a glorious glass to complement a signature cocktail.  Prickly Pear Margaritas, you say?  Bolero glasses all the way!


When we had our initial meeting Katie explained to me that they would not be needing any linens.  None.  She went on to tell me that her aunt would be making all the linens, for the guest tables, buffets, satellite bars, as well as the the toppers and runners.  “Well, you’ll be needing napkins, correct?” I asked.  “No napkins, its crazy, but my aunt has made 250 green napkins in the perfect shade!”  Now THAT is commitment to a vision.   And lots of time spent sitting in front of a sewing machine.


The result?  Check it out for yourself in the most recent edition of The Knot:

Shortly after the wedding we received the following email from Katie’s mother:

“I can not express to you how much I appreciate all of the work you and your staff provided for Katie and David’s wedding.  What a beautiful presentation you provided.  I kept hearing everyone talk about how fresh and tasteful the dinner was. I saw plates that were full to the brim and it got a little quiet when they all sat down.   We could not be happier with the way everything turned out. 
We hope that you and your staff at “2 DINE 4” will continue to have many more successes in the catering business.  You truly do shine in the industry.  I am so glad that Katie picked you all for such an important feature of her wedding. 
Thanks again for making us feel that we were your most important wedding ever.”
